Default Cavs want Jr?

Rumor has it that the Cleveland Cavaliers want shooting guard Jr Smith to pair up with basketball phenom Lebron James.

Do you guys think the Nuggets will try harder to pursue Smith now or will Smith walk away with the Cavs, or even another team?

*Losing Jr will definitely kill our team, after losing Camby and Najera. What's next for this Nuggets team trying to free up cap space, trading away Nene for an unproven player?*

Cavs are currently 2nd in terms of team payrolls at around $85 million heading into next season, while Denver is as of now 7th at around $73 million. Does Cleveland really have enough to offer for J.R. who'll probably want $4-6 million a year?. Also, Nuggets have said over and over again that they plan on matching any teams offers for J.R., so I'm not that worried..unless they do something stupid like they've done throughout the whole offseason.

I think the nuggets will match, if the cavs even offer, which I doubt they will.

The rocky mountain news has now reported that Jr will be re-signed by the Nuggets in the next 7-10 days for a long term deal. Unless another team like the Spurs get involved wanting a young guy that has potential.

What kind of deal do you guys think he's getting, and will there be enough room to get a good player at the point or even a back up center if he's locked on for a long term high salary contract?
